She-ah-wah-coe-wah-mene--Chief of the Sioux, or the sparrow that hunts as he walks. This is a sensible and worthy man, a good chief and faithful to his people. He has lived long enough to have taken part in the wars that raged for so many years between the Sioux and Chippeways, but he rose to his station of chief more by the wisdom of his council than his prowess. [P. 14.]
